Stunning room with all the extras. Excellent staff.From the front desk, to the valets, to the restaurant. We were always greeted with smiles and a "can do" attitude. Beautiful intimate bar ,fantastic appetizers, and great bartender( Mark, I think) . Also, great breakfast on both occasions.

Hotel was beautiful! Everyone was super nice and helpful. Spacious bathroom. Great restaurant and room service. Feels very historic though it is not. Even better was the price for all of it. I Would definitely return.

Not the cheapest hotel in town, but must be the nicest, with loads of character, from the huge antique maps in the lobby, the comfortable wood walls and ceilings everywhere -- like a club. Rooms were big and comfortable, big bathroom, all very quiet, breakfast terrific. Dinners here are for southern cooking lovers, but there are many other options close...

The room was nice, and the bed was very comfortable. The water pressure in the shower was very weak, and we had the view of a brick wall, but otherwise, everything was fine. We were not in the room very much, so we weren't too concerned about the view on this trip.

Great location, walking to restaurants, river walk and few blocks from the Capital. Friendly staff, rooms are dated and in need of some updates. Parking can be tricky but the hotel offers valet parking which is a plus

I don't understand the negative reviews because I found this to be a great place to stay. Sarah (can't remember last name) was awesome; always cheerful and very helpful to us. The restaurant can get busy but I enjoyed the food and was delighted when we had Sarah as a server! I recommend this hotel.

We stayed at The Berkley because of it's proximity to The Carpenter Center. We were pleasantly surprised to find that's it's location at the edge of Shokoe Slip was close to many other restaurants and LaDiff furniture store. The hotel restaurant was OK but we'll try one of the other ones next time.

This is the third time my friend and I have stayed at the Berkeley for a girls' week-end visiting the Bizarre Bazaar, a Richmond institution. We will never stay anywhere else when we visit Richmond.
